Lightning, white-hot flash.
Hearts pounding, breathing quickens.
Suddenly, release.

Joannak, this is wonderful, enjoyed it.

I never really understood a Haiku. I am not too fond of the 5-7-5 limitation.. Yet, yours is still a shocker

Joannak,

VERY nicely done.  I am particularly fond of Haiku. I enjoy the challange of packing as much meaning as possible into the minimum of words. I see that this is your first poetry posting with Passions. Welcome! You have set a high standard for yourself. I look forward to reading more.

JoannaK~
Welcome to Passion's.
I like this Haiku.
You've done this well.

And after the lightning ......

Thunder rolls within
Chasm of earth filled with sound
Thunder resounding

Thanks all for the welcome.
First times are a challenge, and I enjoyed the experience.  
Dark Angel, Eagle, INclan, Marge and hoot, thanks for the encouragement.

Joanna,

Welcome to Passions. Great first post.
I've been trying to get some Haiku going in the Corner Pub. Please drop by we'd love to have you.

Share a little brew,
give us a haiku or two;
let's get this going.
